Gear review: Peak Design Everyday Sling

Written by: Renee Howard

Attention photo junkies: Peak Design is killing it with their new Everyday Sling.

The pro camera bag is designed for use by the photographer on the go, and will keep your precious gear safe without drawing unnecessary attention to it. 

Design:

The Everyday Sling functions as a durable, weather resistant, multi-use bag. It works not just for photo gear, but any “every day carry” items you own.

The bag’s main compartment is designed to accommodate a 13” computer, a full frame 35mm camera and at least two lenses. A pocket within the sling makes it easy to organize SD cards, cords, and all other tech accessories. Modular FlexFold dividers can be rearranged to fit any camera body and lens size.

An additional external pocket is perfect for quick-grab essentials like a wallet, chapstick, or lens cleaner. A tripod or a yoga mat can be strapped to the outside. 

 

Travel:

The bag’s theft-resistant zipper pull is a clever feature, and a handy one for travelers. It makes it a little harder for someone to quietly swipe your camera when you’re spacing out.

The sling conveniently integrates with your luggage, and the design integrates firm padding to protect your gear. That provides much-needed peace of mind when jostling around during travel.

Wearability:

The sling looks hip enough to be a day-to-day work bag, and it’s durable enough to weather most elements (save a torrential downpour) for active shooting.

The sling can be carried like a briefcase or worn over the shoulder, and features two strap adjustments that make fitting easy. It’s designed to be accessed while worn—all zippers and pockets can be easily reached while the bag is worn over either shoulder.

Overall Impression: A+

The EveryDay Sling is my new go-to bag for any scenario where access and adaptability are paramount—be it a wedding, sports, or editorial photo work. The bag sells online for $149,95.
